    I would disagree with this statement. The object of using parallels is to pass more lines of magnetism through small parts. If you have a wide pole chuck and use the same pitch parallels you're not...

    So far all is well. The disk is still in place. I do use the 6x48 belt portion of the sander 90+% of the time. The disk is only used for the odd shaped thing that either can't be, or is clumsy to...

    Well I tried to reinstall one of the curled disks this afternoon. I cleaned the platen and used a little 3M Super 77 adhesive. The first attempt was a bust. As I was sliding the disk between the...

    Not exactly the same brand, but about 12 years ago I was in the same situation with a little larger trailer. This one is a dual axle model with 10,000 lb. capacity. The only bearings I could find...

    To me the main reason for using reduced shank taps is when holes need to be tapped slightly deeper than the length of the thread cutting section. For applications other than that I tend to use the...

    Treating the ash trees is a bit of a double edged sword. The treatment kills the ash borers, but it also kills just about any other bug that decides to take a bite out of a leaf or branch. That...

    Same here. In the past I've also used Newell and Acu-Rite. They all worked well without problems. I purchased the Electronica mainly because of the price difference. It's on a machine that gets...

    I would totally agree. I've done a few brazed carbide form tools tools on a green wheel. It takes forever to get a good edge, and by the time you're done you're standing in a pile of green dust. ...

    Where did you order your diamond SG wheel? I am looking for one approximately the same size for the same purpose. Prices seem to be all over the map and often names I've never heard of.
